Activism for Economic Assistance for Nonprofit Theatres and Artists Impacted by Coronavirus

Online petition with helpful script for contacting your representitives.

The federal government is considering new forms of economic relief, and eligibility for nonprofit theatres and theatre artists is essential. It will be likely that theatres and other nonprofit organizations will need to enlist the help of elected officials to access any relief that may become available, so those relationships need to be developed or strengthened now. Urge your Representative and Senators to advocate on your behalf and be as specific as possible about the impact to your theatre, so they will understand the ripple effect of the losses to your theatre and to the communities your theatre serves.
